Designs launched for supersonic business jet

It was reported this month that preliminary designs for a quiet supersonic business jet have been launched by a Russian aeronautical research agency.

The jet, which could fly over populated areas, should generate the same noise level as future subsonic aircraft for the civil market.

A conceptual image of the aircraft shows it with a long, pointed nose and up to four engines on the aft fuselage.

The goal of the project by TsAGI (The Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute ) is to establish Russia as a technology leader in business aviation.
